    I wonder if that is because you are using an add on launcher and not the stock launcher like I am?

    This may not add to the apps2sd discussion but I started noticing something strange with Launcher Pro yesterday. I have one game, Meteor Deluxe that began acting wierd. The game was on the phone and installed, but upon boot I would only get the green generic icon, and the game would not show up in my app drawer. But I could use a shortcut to create it on my homescreen. After reading this thread I just tried doing the Launcher Pro refresh after boot, and the game shows up with the proper icon on homescreen and pops back up in my app drawer.

    So, what some of you may be seeing may not be completely related to apps to sd, but perhaps some issue with Launcher Pro. Heck, perhaps some combination of the 2.2 and the dev. apps being developed. And all of this was tried without doing any moving to sd.

    edit: Well this is interesting, I guess I was really seeing what some of you are, as this program updated a day or so ago, and actually installed to the sd card on it's own. I did not put it there, but I just checked to see if I could move it to the sd card, and the box was marked move to phone. I confirmed that it is not in data/app, but found a .asec file on my sd card . So, it appears a refresh of LP will make things normal.

    settings, applications, manage and click on one and you should get a choice.

    I just found this out when I reinstalled Beautiful Widgets because it wasn't updating. When I reinstalled it went on the SD card. Not even thinking about it I added the widget to my home screen. It disappeared from the home screen shortly and I realized BW was installed on the SD card. I had to move it to my phone and reboot before I could re-add the widget.

    This is happening to me. If I clear defaults on launcher pro the icon's show up and the apps re-appear in the drawer. But if I reboot they go away again till I clear defaults again. Very odd. That and sometimes when I move an app to SD the phone will no longer find it to launch it although the icon is there and looking the way it should.

    I haven't. Dealing with all my shortcuts disappearing even in stock launcher atm if they are in folders. In time there will be less issues hopefully. At least everything runs smooth from sdcard.
